Just gorgeous vintage desk set that includes a pair of 9&1/2 inch long scissors that are marked, "Schnefel Bros Germany", and, "LaCross". The matching letter opener is 9&1/16 inches. Both pieces fit into a two compartment leather and brass sheath. The heavy, ornate handles are made of brass, and the blades, I believe, are nickle plated. All three pieces are in excellent condition, especially when considering their age. The blades are shiny and show very minor signs of age and use. No rust, or deep pitting.
